I see so many people overwork and crash their diets for quick results. Then stop when it gets too heavy. I want you to be strong enough for everything else in life, whether you're hoping for a wakeboard or quad biking. When I put together these workouts, I really wanted to return to the basics.
Based on my popular LIIFT4 program on Beachbody OnDemand, this efficient and effective lower body workout combines with High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT).
A study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning found that active people who performed HIIT training compared to just cardio or weights only burned significantly more calories. Remember, it does not have to be all or nothing. Consistency brings you to your goals.
